Un mar sin estrellas

Erin Morgenstern

Book - 2019

"Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a rare book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues--a bee, a key, and a sword--that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a s...ecret club, and through a doorway to a subterranean library, hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians--it is a place of lost cities and seas of honey, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a beautiful barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly-soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose--in both the rare book and in his own life"--

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Zachary Ezra Rawlins es un estudiante graduado en Vermont cuando descubre un misterioso libro escondido entre un montón. Mientras pasa las páginas, lee algo extraño: la historia de su propia infancia. Desconcertado por este libro inexplicable y desesperado por comprender cómo se grabó su propia vida, Zachary descubre una serie de pistas, una abeja, una llave y una espada, que lo llevan a una fiesta de disfraces en Nueva York, a un club secreto, y por una puerta a una antigua biblioteca escondida muy por debajo de la superficie de la tierra. Junto con Mirabel, una feroz protectora del lugar, de cabello color rosa, y Dorian, un hombre guapo y descalzo con alianzas cambiantes, recorren con Zachary los túneles retorcidos, las escaleras oscuras, las salas de baile abarrotadas y las costas empapadas de este dulce mundo mágico, descubriendo así su propósito - tanto en el libro misterioso como en su propia vida.
